With last year’s overall Grand Prix champions Chris Doran and Karina LeFevre already down to start their title defence in Liverpool, it is set to be a high quality field including some of Britain’s best players. Top Grand Prix players Ryan Jenkins and Adam Nutland as well as para stars David Wetherill, Billy Shilton and Aaron McKibbin are just a few more exciting names to look out for.
As always the popular banded events will take place on the Saturday, giving competitive players of all abilities the chance to face off against someone of a similar standard. Closely fought matches against someone you don’t often play is just one of the benefits this national event brings.
Sunday PM will see the return of the Men’s & Women’s Under 21 Singles, Mixed Veteran and Open Doubles events.
The second stop on this season’s circuit will see the Grand Prix go to a new venue in Aldershot. Stay tuned for more news, including entry forms, in the coming weeks.
And finally, below is a map including the 8 main Grand Prix for the coming season, with the Satellite Grand Prix due to be announced in the coming days.
